T2-PALE

T2-Programme d'analyse longitudinale de l'emploi (PALE)

description

  • Nature : Couplage des données du formulaire T2 et de l'ensemble de données du PALE.
  • Utilisation : La base de données peut servir à étudier la dynamique des entreprises, le roulement des industries et la croissance de la productivité, ainsi que le rapport entre le financement des entreprises et leur rendement.
  • Contenu : Le T2-PALE regroupe, entre autres, les ventes, les bénéfices bruts, les capitaux propres et les actifs pour toutes les entreprises constituées en sociétés au Canada, et les données sur l'emploi et la rémunération du PALE.
  • Période de couverture : 1984 à 2012.

Funded Projects

All importing firms can then be allocated to one of four bins: two for direct importers(manufacturers and retailers), one for indirect importers (wholesalers) and one for the firms with a mix mode of imports (i.e. acting both as direct and as indirect importers). The relative importance of each of these modes can then be assessed either in terms of firm counts or in terms of import values. The main goal of this project is both to document the importance and characteristics of these bins and to test their main determinants using the case of import values only. The second goal of this project is to examine specific aspects of intermediation within the US/NAFTA context. This is linked to a fundamental aspect of intermediaries: their  advantage over direct importing is more significant for sources involving higher fixed and/or variable barriers to trade.

This project will explore the technological frictions that firms face when adjusting their capital and labour. These frictions, known as adjustment costs, limit the ability of firms to optimally set their input allocations. Using an administrative firm level dataset from Statistics Canada, a three-factor structural model is developed to estimate the adjustment costs of buildings, machinery & equipment, and labour. The project highlights the degree to which these adjustment costs differ across inputs and explores interrelations between them. These interrelations are important because they provide an additional channel through which fiscal and monetary policy can affect the factor demand of inputs.

This project will assess research and development spillovers in a production function framework by adding research and development performed by other firms (“outside” research and development) as an input along with labour, tangible capital and the stock of research and development performed by the firm (“inside” research and development).

We aim to understand how providing access to affordable childcare can affect economic productivity. We know from a wide body of academic literature that child-rearing responsibilities impose a severe penalty on the careers of working women, and governments have occasionally attempted to address this by providing public subsidies for universal childcare access. We study one prominent example of such a subsidy program, in which Quebec introduced a generous universal subsidy in 1997 that limited childcare costs to five dollars per day. The specific implementation of the program allows us to compare working mothers with children who are narrowly eligible versus narrowly ineligible for the new program. By comparing otherwise-similar individuals with differing levels of access to childcare, we can estimate how access to childcare affects the future productivity and career trajectories of the individuals affected. We also study whether this subsidy improved the productivity of firms by comparing Quebec to Canadian provinces that did not introduce any new subsidy programs. Our research will provide future policymakers with a better understanding of the costs and benefits of childcare subsidy programs.

This paper provides a theoretical and empirical analysis of the effects of nominal exchange rate move-ments on cross-border travel by consumers and on retail firms’ sales. We develop a search-theoretic model of price-setting heterogeneous retailers and traveling consumers who face nominal exchange rate shocks. These exchange rate shocks act as both a supply side shock for retailers though imported input prices and a demand side shock though their effect on the propensity for consumers to cross the border and shop at foreign retail stores. The model provides predictions regarding relationships between firm and regional characteristics and the magnitude of the effects of nominal exchange rate fluctuations and resulting cross-border travel activity on retailers’ sales. We use our theoretical framework to motivate an empirical methodology applied to Canadian firm and consumer level data from 1987 to 2007. Our findings indicate that an appreciation of the Canadian dollar substantially increases cross border travel which in turn has a significant negative effect on the sales of Canadian retailers. These effects diminish with the distance of the retailer from the border and with the shopping opportunities available at relevant US destinations. Using counterfactual experiments, we quantify the effects of more restric-tive border controls after September 2001 which discouraged cross-border trips and reduced retailer losses from cross-border shopping as well as the effects of increased duty free allowances which raised cross-border trips and reduced retailer sales.
